relyon-logo-beds-for-heavy-peopleAs we get bigger as a race, here at Big Brand Beds and vokins@home, we are often asked for beds and mattresses for heavy people. These are not necessarily big beds, but ones suitable for bigger individuals.

As bed experts we can of course get specially made reinforced divan bases made to order, but many of these have a slightly institutional feel and aren’t always what our customers require.

Relyon-Cavendish-Bed-250-629.jpgThe good news is that our good friends Relyon can help. All of Relyon’s beds and mattresses go through a series of strenuous tests to make sure they are up to the job and stand up to their 5 year guarantee.

The maximum weight recommended by Relyon for use on their single beds is 17 ½ stone (245lbs / 111 kilos). Their double beds are tested to a combined weight of 35 stone (490lbs / 222 kilos). For a double bed being used by a single person it is recommended that the maximum weight is 25 stone (350lbs / 158 kilos).

We would generally recommend a firm mattress on a bed for heavy people and the beauty of Relyon’s mattresses is that many of them are bespoke and available in a firm tension. You might have to wait a little longer, but the quality is worth the wait.

Which beds would we suggest you look at? Well the Relyon Salisbury Ortho is great value, but if you really want to treat yourself look no further than the Relyon Cavendish (pictured). There are many other suitable beds for heavy people in the range at a variety of prices. Most have a choice of divan upholstery and some even come on fashionable legs.

One thing that is very important to bear in mind is that with extra weight, the mattress will suffer from more natural settlement, so it is vital that it is turned and rotated regularly.
